Perceiving the Arts: An Introduction to the Humanities (10th Edition) ISBN 9780205096558 by Dennis J. Sporre is an introductory reference written for those who have very little background in the arts. It is an excellent reference for art appreciation classes, introducing students to the different forms and art disciplines, and providing them with basic knowledge on how to appreciate art. It is a concise introduction to the subject, focusing on the most essential principles and concepts surrounding the visual arts, music, theater, writing, dance, and even architecture. The book boasts illustrations and photos in full color and in black and white, offering a glimpse of real-world, ancient, and contemporary artworks. This 10th edition of Perceiving the Arts: An Introduction to the Humanities (like all the previous editions) was developed for interdisciplinary courses in art appreciation. Its unique approach and visual treatment appeals not only to students but to instructors and art enthusiasts as well. The book offers insights on how to respond to art and how to evaluate various artistic expressions. The major disciplines included in the book include 2 dimensional art including pictures, drawings, paintings, prints, and photography. There is a whole chapter on sculpture and architecture, as well as separate discussions of various forms of performing arts. Author Dennis J. Sporre is an accomplished professor. He has written a long list of textbooks on art appreciation, including The Creative Impulse: An Introduction to the Arts, Reality Through the Arts, The Art of Theatre, and Arts Guide: World and Web. This book is an excellent tool for teaching and studying art appreciation, as it is filled with useful insights on how to perceive, appreciate, and evaluate art.
